Stem Opt Application DV Issues

Recommended Posts

Hi Members,

Thanks for your service.

I have got arrested for DV in May 2018. My Visa was revoked as well.

My case was resolved, I pled no contest to simple battery, 3 years probation, 18 week classes and some fines.

I have not left the country and I am applying for OPT STEM Extension this month.

What can I expect? Will I get my OPT STEM? I've got RFE on the uscis website.

What will I expect, and can I get my stem opt approved?

Thank you,

Why do you think people can give magical answers to your questions ?

Apply for the extension and if you receive a RFE then logically the approval will depend on your satisfactory reply to the RFE.

With an arrest, a guilty plea, and a revoked visa, you should exit the US.  Reapply for an appropriate visa at a US consulate overseas, and let the CO decide your eligibility to be in the US. Domestic violence is a serious offence. Does your employer know about the arrest and charges?

Hi, I hope everything is going well. I'm in a similar situation to yours, and I'm extremely worried. Did you get your OPT STEM extension? Did you answer the question of arrest/conviction history on I-765 form? Any information would be helpful. Thank you so much and wish you all the best!
